Sexual intercourse after a C-Section

So when I am allowed to resume sexual intercourse, do I still need to not have much pressure on my stomach.  It's still tender (about two weeks out here) so I know that I have to wait a week or two more, but what did others do and did you have tender bellies still.  Dr. said the insioin is healing well, but I am still bleeding.  I know it's a touch and go situation, but just wanting some advice.

With my surgery we had to wait 2-4 weeks to have sex, but then again I didn't have a baby.

they say about 6 weeks but manyresume before that they say that long to keep you from getting an infection.

we resumed 3 wks after my c-section.  We were careful.  It was a little uncomfortable at 1st but not painful.  You could always place a pillow across your stomach.
